Issue: Getting out the message: Commission races highlight spending debate/Erica Curless, Spokesman-Review
More Info: Kootenai County's recent hiring of a local public relations firm has become a hot issue in Tuesday's commission races. Both incumbents, Commission Chairman Gus Johnson and Commissioner Katie Brodie, think it's a good use of taxpayers' dollars because it informs residents and county workers about what's going on in their county. ... Yet their opponents in the primary election criticize the decision, arguing it's wasteful spending.
Question: Do Kootenai County commissioners need a public relations firm to get their message out?
